03/31/2004 - Burning Money and Liquid Oxygen!

Since the liquid O2 molecule is a paramagnetic (meaning that a magnet can affect it), we were able to suspend the super-cole liquid in midair with a powerful horshoe magnet!

On a seperate note, we also dipped a dollar bill in a mixture of isopropyl alcohol.  We then lifed the bill out of the solution and because the alcohol and water don't mix, the alcohol floats on top if the water soaked dollar bill.  When we lit the bill on fire, only the alcohol floating on top of the water burned and the bill itself was unharmed!
